I use zonealarm. Its free but im not sure if its compatible with 98. I will go look.

EDIT: Just looked at their website and im pretty sure it will work. Other people might know of a better free firewall though.

Sygate Personal Firewall is free for all to use.

Oh...nvm. Symantec bought out Sygate, so all their firewall products are discontinued. Stupid Symantec...all they do is overcharge and bug you with subscription crap. Bleh.

I guess you'll have to resort to Softpedia.

Hehe. I'm running SPF. Its the only one I count on. Its sad that there will be no more. I guess ZoneAlarm is decent though.

Lol, you could always use the built in firewall that comes with Win XP.
